Lots of biplane action and mystery. A mysterious black biplane, with a large X painted on the fuselage and wings, is shooting other planes out of the American skies. The best fighter pilots from all over the world are invited to a mansion, brought together to team up, locate, and shoot down Pilot X. Pretty quickly, they realize that Pilot X is one of the team members; but which one?
I downloaded the source file, from this site; cleaned the pop and hiss out of the audio, and here's the new "improved" copy.

The mostly earthbound mystery of planes being shot down by a mysterious pilot has a lot going for it. The cast from John Carroll, Leon Ames and right on down is uniformly superior. Red herrings are everywhere. The plot keeps you guessing. NO SPOILERS HERE!. Produced by a lady producer of some note, Franchon Royer and released by Puritan Pictures under the title also of "Death In The Air". Production values are superior and the cleaned up sound and mostly great picture don't hurt either. They didn't know what it was back then but PTSD was a major plot device in this as well. A Lot of the players were known for westerns and I found myself looking to see wether or not they were wearing shoes or cowboy boots a couple of times.(my joke) The stock footage of planes and dogfights is blended in quite nicely as well. I liked it. A buffs delight. Enjoy.
